Green Chemistry



Green Materials, Green Bioprocesses, Green Energy, Green Industrial Processes and Molecular Innovation, Green Policy, Sustainability and Safety cover the areas of great importance encompassed within IUPAC’s mission to provide objective scientific expertise and to disseminate the chemical knowledge for the benefit of everybody, enabling the humanity with the essential tools to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

IUPAC Journals

Pure and Applied Chemistry

The following Conference Papers from the 6th International Conference on Green Chemistry are published in IUPAC’s flagship journal, Pure and Applied Chemistry. Because of the large number of papers accepted for publication, these articles appeared in both the January and February issues of 2018. They are collected here along with Prefaces from the previous ICGC meetings, which we hope you will find illuminating.
